  1. AR-15 Failure to Feed

    3 or 4 trips is pretty reasonable, just not sure I could keep track of that. Sooner or later I'd have 20 guns in various unknown conditions. Last weekend it was ARs in .308 and 5.56, a .40 pistol.. tomorrow I'm picking up a repaired .45 from Sig - you know that is coming out this weekend and...
  2. Best AR for Under $1,000

    If I was going pistol I'd go Saint Edge. Little more coin than others but very nicely done & reviewed, and you can at least claim it is a full documented production version if anyone ever busts your balls calling it a stamp less SBR.
  3. Removable stock legal?

    Should the title here be "MA Legal" or are we talking feds? I'm talking feds.. Fed law (I believe, do your own research) is interpreted as "intended" to be fired in such a way (ie under 26 inches). The whole pistol with brace thing rests on this concept, it's a spoon, use it as a fork if you...
  4. AR-15 Failure to Feed

    I've had signs of things like gas port erosion prior to any sign of moving part wear, but generally my idea is since I clean immediately after every use they never get dirty to the point where I need to go further than plastic bristles, excepting the bolt that does get steel brushing due to...
  5. AR-15 Failure to Feed

    Just because you can fill an AR15 with mud or run 5000 rounds without too many jams doesn't mean you can't dirty it beyond well operating, or prematurely wear it out. Its like smoking, only a small percentage actually get cancer but that doesn't mean smoking is unrelated. As not only I...
  6. Quality or Quantity?

    I'd say for sure the gun grabbers create an additional dimension in the sense of "how many" for villanized models. I'd own a carbine and long range version of AR15 and AR10, and that's about it, but due to their idiocy I am in the double digits in complete rifles alone.
  7. Quality or Quantity?

    Quality is important but you don't always get what you pay for. In my eyes buying a $1500 revolver versus a similar model for $600 (at a similar discount below list) and the $$ likely is going into better quality. This is very apparent when you buy up-level from the same brand.. Buying at...
  8. Best AR for Under $1,000

    In AR15s Aero, particularly their "Enhanced" product lines, is about as good as anyone's. Lowers are top notch with integral trigger guards and various other nice touches, uppers are top notch- hanguards are strong, light, and positively secure with 8 threaded fasteners (bolt on guards is...
  9. AR-15 Failure to Feed

    Translation (most likely anyway): My gun is fouled from lack of cleaning after running garbage ammo, now it doesn't work right :).. If a new round gets jammed between the bolt and feed ramp basically what is happening usually is the bolt isn't coming back far enough to catch the base of the...
  10. CONNECTICUT-BASED STAG ARMS ANNOUNCES THEY ARE RELOCATING

    I thought my stag 15 was the most reliable AR out of my pile, so rock solid, zero failures. Then one day I had a minor kaboom, blew up mag, bcg jammed hopelessly. They sent me a new complete rifle in short time, great company to do businesses with, stand behind their products. Who knows what...
  11. The pistol carbine 9mm - Novelty or purpose

    Old thread but every time I see a PC carbine or braced 9mm AR "pistol" my initial reaction is cool!! why don't I own one already!??.. then I remember why I don't - my p226 holds 20 rounds in a balanced manner, takes up a whole lot less space, and I can dump a mag into a silhouette with it at 50...
  12. Ruger Mini-14 going in for service

    Same thing happened to me, they "built" one specifically for my replacement but it came with my original mag I sent in plus 2x20 round mags, rings, all paperwork/packaging/box.
  13. Ruger Mini-14 going in for service

    Ruger has a lot of QC issues but nobody beats them on customer service.
  14. Thinking 7.62 x 39

    Well maybe in your local gun store, but it's about as common in brass as .308 is from my experience. Any reasonable online ammo retailer has lots of it, and recently I was buying some odd brand up for around .25 that ran just great in my mini. Yes brass is more expensive but its not really...
  15. Thinking 7.62 x 39

    I don't get the obssession with running steel ammo, although plenty of people do in mini 30s I do not run anything other than brass in any gun I own. If its worth keeping its worth 10 cents a round for brass.. buy your brass ammo in bulk when prices are cheap, stack it deep. AKs are great, so...
